Here’s what you need to know to sell your home fast and for more money.

Are you struggling to sell your home? Whether you're dealing with a tough or favorable housing market, there can be instances when your home doesn't sell as quickly as expected. In this article, I'll share three valuable tips to help you expedite the sale of your home. To address potential roadblocks in achieving a faster sale, we'll focus on three key areas: pricing, presentation, and marketing:

1. Pricing. In a market that's constantly shifting, whether it's going up or down, your home's pricing strategy can significantly impact its sale. Setting the right price from the start is crucial. If the initial price isn't on target, it may delay finding a buyer and result in a higher "Days on Market" count. Prolonged exposure on the market can make potential buyers wonder if something is wrong with the property.

"Pricing is part of your marketing strategy."

2. Presentation. The presentation of your home is essential. Start with professional-quality photos for online listings, as first impressions matter. If your agent used subpar photos initially, consider having them take new ones with a professional photographer. Additionally, if your home is vacant, staging it can enhance its appeal. Presentation is about showing your home at its best.

3. Marketing. The effectiveness of your home's marketing largely depends on your agent's skills. However, as a homeowner, you can engage in discussions with your agent about their marketing strategy. Don't just focus on the present; ask for a comprehensive overview of the marketing efforts from the listing's inception to the present. Identifying any gaps in the marketing plan can help improve your chances of a successful sale.
